South of Council Bluffs, a majestic hilltop barn sits beneath the Milky Way. A tiny meteor is streaking through the upper-right corner. In the past month, I’ve done more night photography than I ever have. First, my brother and I spent mid-July in the Badlands and Black Hills photographing the inky clear skies of South Dakota. And then the Perseids meteor shower coincided with the new moon this past week, so I joined some local photographer friends on a couple of night outings, reveling in the eerie midnight stillness of rural western Iowa.
In other exciting news, mutual admiration has resulted in a mini-exhibit of my prints at Tussey’s Casual Grill in Omaha: four large landscape prints and six floral portraits. Go take a look and try their Thai chicken pasta. It is amazingly good.
